Grieving a suicide, mental illness
Albert Y. Hsu

The holiday season can be especially difficult when you’re grieving any kind of loss, but grief from a suicide is particularly complicated. In 1998, Albert Hsu received a call that his father had committed suicide. Last year, InterVarsity Press published a revised and expanded edition of his book Grieving a Suicide: A Loved One’s Search for Comfort, Answers, and Hope. Here, Albert reflects on grief, the current statistics around suicide, where he finds hope, and how we can help those who might be struggling with suicidal thoughts.

In college, I got a Bachelor of Science degree in recreation and leisure studies. I avoided anything and everything that was hard.

The closer we resemble Jesus, the closer we are to being truly humble.
